Spotted eagle-owls delight bookworms at a Pretoria library


- Advertisment -

It may be South Africa’s most common large owl, but that does not take away from the pleasure of seeing it in suburban Pretoria.

The Glenstantia Community Library and Information Service has become home to a family of spotted eagle-owls.

Librarian Therese Els explains that last month the Vermaak family was visiting the library when son Reece noticed an owl on the ground near the parking lot.

He alerted library staff who then discovered a nest with three fluffy owlets hidden in the wide concrete gutter of the library building.
